Plum Burl

>I harvested some plum burl over the weekend but have no time to rough them out for about a month. What is the best way to store them until then, submerge in water, cover in anchorseal and put outside in the shade, etc.?

I've never turned a burl so, how do I mount and turn them? Is the inside of the tree the outside of the "bowl" and, the outside of the tree/burl the botom of the burl? They are fairly small, 6 - 12 inches in diameter.
